Bryan Singer off Logan's Run?

LogansRun.jpgThe word on the digi-street is that Bryan Singer and Joel Silver have not seen eye to eye on the remake of the classic Logan's Run and that the winner isn't the person that had a passion for the project, it's the one with the money, so Bryan Singer is out and Joel Silver keeps the project.

Right now it sounds as though Silver has dropped Singer and pulled in Joe Kosinski to direct, and Joel Silver might even be considering new writers as well to Jayson Rothwell and Travis Beachman to try and modernise the story even more.

For those of you who don't know, Joe Kosinski is a commercials director who has done some very strong work for SAAB, Apple, XBox, Nike, etc. Looking at his work you could guess that this would be a modernised, futuristic action type film, more akin to The Island or I, Robot.

I don't think that this is the best thing for the Logan's Run remake, and my father would agree. Maybe one day I'll get him to write something on here, but I doubt it, even if it is for one of his favourite films and stars Jenny Agutter in a skimpy outfit. The story from IESB is disheartening to say the least, I think it's a great loss to see Singer off this film.

Bryan Singer has proved that he can take a classic film that no one thought could be updated, done it, and done it well. Surely he was the best bet for another classic film?
